    *follows everyone* thanks Alex

  132. Peter Waher

    Where/how is the best location/method for starting forming interest groups withing xmpp.org ?

  133. Alex adds the new members to the mailing list

  134. stpeter

    Peter Waher: what interest group are you interested in?

  135. stpeter

    typically we discuss technical topics on the standards@xmpp.org list and organizational topics on the members@xmpp.org list

  136. Peter Waher


  137. Peter Waher

    I'm currently interested in three areas

  138. stpeter

    there's a list of lsits at http://mail.jabber.org/mailman/listinfo

  139. Peter Waher

    1) Sensor networks

  140. Peter Waher

    2) Distributed social networks

  141. Peter Waher

    3) Extensions of semantic web to p2p networks

  142. kevin

    Marc: hows weather there?

  143. Peter Waher

    How do I best come in contact with members interested in similar topics?

  144. Peter Waher

    Mailing to above mailing lists?

  145. MiGri

    thats one goos way

  146. MiGri


  147. stpeter

    Peter Waher: I've been talking with other people interested in sensor networks and smartgrid and such -- I might start a new discussion list about that topic

  148. Peter Waher

    excellent. :)

  149. stpeter

    Peter Waher: there is definitely some interest in that topic among a small but active community of people

  150. Zash

    (mailing lists need pep-style filtering)

  151. stpeter

    as to distributed social networks, we have some talks now and then with the OStatus / StatusNet / etc. folks

  152. Kev

    And BuddyCloud, most notably.

  153. Marc

    >kevin: Marc: hows weather there? damp and cold :| hows the weather there?

  154. stpeter

    kev: indeed

  155. kevin

    Marc: too Cold : D

  156. Peter Waher

    We're interested in building social network applications based on XMPP and Plug Computers

  157. Marc

    >kevin: Marc: too Cold : D what its cold there too? oh and join my website now :)

  158. Peter Waher

    which would help users maintain ownership control of the life cycle of published information

  159. stpeter

    Peter Waher: sounds interesting

  160. stpeter

    Peter Waher: you'll definitely want to chat with the BuddyCloud guys

  161. Zash

    Related to Freedom box?

  162. stpeter

    Peter Waher: we have a list for XMPP and social networking at http://mail.jabber.org/mailman/listinfo/social

  163. dwd

    stpeter, I was going to say, the buddycloud guys have built a distributed social network on the back of XMPP.

  164. stpeter

    dwd: yes indeed

  165. Alex

    you are all subscribed now

  166. Peter Waher

    Looks interesting. Will definitely have a look at what they offer and see if we can work together somehow.

  167. stpeter

    Peter Waher: cool

  168. dwd

    Peter Waher, buddycloud is about as open as you could hope for, the only problem is they're weak on formal docs about the protocol.

  169. stpeter

    Peter Waher: where are you located? several BuddyCloud folks and other federated social web people will be at FOSDEM / XMPP Summit (that reminds me, I need to follow up with Simon about that...)

  170. dwd

    Peter Waher, But they'll all be at the SUmmit.

  171. Marc

    >Peter Waher: We're interested in building social network applications based on XMPP and Plug Computers i am intergrating xmpp/jabber into my website :)

  172. Marc

    so you can join rooms nad such :)

  173. Marc


  174. Peter Waher

    I'm located in Sweden. I was thinking about perhaps going to the summit if time allows.

  176. Peter Waher

    It would be a great way to share ideas and find peers interested in similar topics

  177. dwd

    imaginator, Hi Simon.

  178. Marc

    >Peter Waher: It would be a great way to share ideas and find peers interested in similar topics indeed

  179. imaginator

    Hi Dave. Simon here.

  180. dwd

    Peter Waher, imaginator is Simon Tennant, the founder of buddycloud.

  181. Peter Waher

    Hello Simon

  182. kevin

    Hi Simon!

  183. Peter Waher

    Just got introduced to buddycloud

  184. imaginator

    so one of the buddycloud projects (sponsored by Google) is the taste engine that looks through channels / pubsub nodes and finds similar followers.

  185. imaginator


  186. imaginator

    Hi Peter and Kev.

  187. dwd

    imaginator, I was also going to bug you about looking at XEP-0309 in relation to buddycloud channels.

  188. Marc

    Hi Simon :)

  189. imaginator

    I've not seen that before. How does 309 deal with getting a wider view rather than just a per-server?

  190. imaginator

    to me this is the real value of Abmar's code. Since jid's are universal - it can get better ideas of taste from looking across multiple open nodes on multiple servers.

  191. dwd

    imaginator, XEP-0309 is newly minted today. But it acts as a central registry service for other services to register themselves with.

  192. dwd

    imaginator, I think it's primarily aimed at replacing the existing server list on xmpp.org, but it could be extended easily, I think, to act as a directory of channels ervers, or channels.

  193. dwd

    imaginator, But anyway - reason I poked you was because Peter Waher was talking about wanting to work on distributed social networking. I think you may know a thing or two about it...

  194. Peter Waher

    Tried to add you as a contact so we could chat later, but it seems I can't get user info about your user. What's you JID?

  195. Marc

    Hi all, i have a qestion?

  196. imaginator

    Regarding the standardisation bits of bc. AT the moment it's been all kept on https://buddycloud.org/wiki/XMPP_XEP but I'd like to start XEP-ing and looking for improvements as more people and servers start to be run.

  197. Marc

    what is better to run a jabber/xmpp server? ejabberd or openfire

  198. stpeter

    Marc: that depends on your requirements :)

  199. imaginator

    Peter - simon@buddycloud.com - always happy to chat.

  200. Marc

    well i want to use msn and so on,

  201. imaginator will also be at FOSDEM

  202. Marc

    and it cannot take to much of my pc memory, as i am running a crappy pc for a server atm

  203. dwd

    Marc, There's lots of other servers aside from ejabberd and Openfire, too.

  204. Marc

    >dwd: Marc, There's lots of other servers aside from ejabberd and Openfire, too. okay can you tell me some please

  212. stpeter

    ok, I'm going to head home soon because I'm not feeling all that well, I'll be back a bit later

  213. stpeter

    imaginator: do we need to follow up with the FSW folks about their schedule in Brussels

  214. Marc

    ralphm, About?

  257. dwd

    ralphm, We seem to have a stand in AW - is this as well as the Realtime Lounge™?

  258. dwd

    ralphm, Because I'm not sure we really want both. Although it'd be great for doing Jingle calls between them, I suppose.

    dwd: well, they assigned that space in AW as a regular stand, but if we just present a nice place, we will /instead/ get the spot in K

  263. ralphm

    dwd: I haven't followed the stuff much this week. I'll try to look into what we have tomorrow

  264. dwd

    Ah, OK.

  265. ralphm

    Let's then see what we have, and come up with some prose

  266. ralphm

    dwd: do you have some preferred time slot for that?
